MASCOTTE - ROLT BETER / PLAKT BETER  / BRANDT BETER - 3 x BETER 

Mascotte no 525 papers are the biggest brand of rolling papers in Holland, which in turn is by far the biggest market for roll-your-own.  With a market share of 60%, Mascotte are the biggest brand on the continent.
*
The design of the Mascotte booklets has changed little over the past 50 years.  In 1994 the tiger was introduced on the front of the packet and in 1997, a brighter, more modern booklet was introduced.  At the same time, the Mascotte Spécial was introduced becoming a strong line extension of the Mascotte brand in Holland

"FLUI"

This is an interesting packet.  FLUI was a brandname for Germany where, in the old days, MASCOTTE could not be registered.  Cigarette paper in Holland is "vloei" which in German would be pronounced "Flui".  - Never really sold, it seems..
